Episodic tale of Christmas Eve in L.A. and Vegas follows grocery clerk Ronna (Polley) as she takes over a shift for Vegas-bound co-worker Simon (Askew) and also agrees to sub as a go-between for a drug deal between two actors (Mohr and Wolf) and Simon's dealer Todd (Olyphant). Three-part narrative also shows Simon's wild ride in Vegas with his buddies and the actors' involvement with a weird cop (Fichtner). Everybody seems to be doing everything at a break-neck pace, and the fact that all the activity is dangerous or illegal makes it that much more fun. Liman does a fine job of sorting out characters and plotlines, and the performances tag this as a star maker for a few of the cast members, most notably Polley and Diggs.
